PALE 2013:
Personalization Approaches
in Learning Environments


June 10th, 2013

The workshop format foster interactive presentations and constructive work. We combine presentations of original achievements with creative group work around specific topics.

Following the experience in previous editions of this and related workshops, PALE moves away from the classic 'mini-conferences' approach and applies the Learning Cafe methodology to promote discussions on open issues related to personalization in learning environments.

2 Learning Cafes are set up, as scheduled below. Each one consists in brief presentations of the key questions posed and small group discussions with participants randomly grouped in tables. Each table will be moderated by one expert in the topic under discussion and participants will change tables during the discussion with the aim to share ideas among the groups.
